I just bought a new Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Touch with Windows 8 that came with Skype preloaded. I was able to log in the first day when I got it but since everytime i click on the Skype tile it opens up and shows the Skype logo and immediately goes back to the start screen! It is running because I can switch to it but as soon as I switch to it, it goes back to the start screen!!! I have this problem with a couple of other applications. Not sure if it is a Windows 8 issue or what, but I was hoping someone here would have a solution for me. Oh by the way, I HATE Microsoft!!! Thank you.
